hi,

i used opentx 2.3.1 and upgraded it to 2.3.9

now external hf is set to off (was before set to crsf / crossfire) and i am not abled to choose anyone.
is this known behavior or a bug?
Cause i have to create a new modell to be able to choose crsf again for external hf.

No, first time we hear that. Do you have a backup of your 2.3.1 files ? What radio ?

There is no need for steps in the same major (2.3.x), there is actually no data conversion within a branch. We will have a look at your file

I flashed your firmware, loaded your eeprom, downloaded 2.3.9, flashed 2.3.9, working fine, cannot replicate your issue, even with your eeprom

thanks for the great effort and support here!

weird that it worked for you, and also strange that when i tried now to downgrade via pc and my taranis didn't boot anymore....
assumed already brick but pressing fast power button helped and bootloader appeared again.
Did readout of firmware again via companion, got same binary after flashing, however when i restart taranis which did not boot, even the background of lcd did not light up, i went back to bootloader mode and read firmware back via companion, the binary was different???

at least the start of the read back binary looks the same (see firmware5.bin, firmware4 is my old 2.3.1 firmware)
So no idea what is going on here, however i changed to the upgrade to the sdcard method and luckily this worked properly and booted up again normally.

So i made a video:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
first i show how i can choose external receiver in 2.3.1
after that i upgrade to 2.3.9
now its not possible for the old models to select a external receiver
however if i create a new model its possible.

https://we.tl/t-3Ouk2Bk7yW

at least it boots again and creating new hardware modell i can select external hf.
question is is it worth to look more into it? i dont trust anything here anymore...

yours,
Manuel

I watch your video again and may have found what happens. Your trainer is set to master/CPPM, which is using external bay. You should NOT have been able to select this AND have an extternal module setup. Possibly due to an earlier bug you where able to, but this should not be the case.. So rightfully, 2.3.9 will not let you select an external module while master/CPPM trainer is set
